Sephora Says Taupe is Dope

Taupe or mushroom, the color's the thing

Taupe or mushroom, the color's the thing

While “taupe” doesn’t exactly conjure up visions of sexy…anything…is is the “in” color, the new neutral according to Sephora’s Beauty and the Blog. In particular, we love the eye looks based on taupe shadows (or mushroom, nude, portobello, khaki, caramel, smoke or any of the other disguises the industry is using to cloak plain old taupe) as the base for a subtle, wearable smokey eye — see the Make Up For Ever tutorial embedded in the post.

We also were surprised, after a trip to the cosmetics counter, that it’s a surprisingly edgy-yet-neutral nail shade. No one’s recommending, heaven forbid,  taupe pantyhose or a taupe color scheme for your home, but don’t discount this range of shades for your spring makeup. You can be at the cutting edge while still looking polished and sophisticated, because no one looks smashing in neon eye shadow, hot-pink rouge or 10 mojito-green talons — except models in magazines.
